Summary
Osteoporosis is a devastating disorder with significant physical and psychosocial consequences. One in three women and one in 12 men over the age of 50 in the UK already suffer from osteoporosis, and every three minutes it is estimated that someone has a fracture due to this disease. However, due to the remarkable progress in the scientific understanding of its causes, diagnosis, and treatment, this disease is now largely preventable. Osteoporosis: an Atlas of Investigation and Diagnosis is a pictoral reference book designed to help doctors understand, prevent and overcome osteoporosis. This practical guide gives advice on how to diagnose and manage patients with this condition and reviews the epidemiology, symptoms, clinical investigations, and the various treatments and interventions
